Great Western Beach nestles between Towan and Tolcarne and can be accessed via the road between the old Barracuda building (now home to Koncept Gym and the Original Factory Shop) and the Great Western Hotel. There are loads of cute little beach huts down on Great Western and a little shop/cafe. You can also walk around the headland at very low tide to the beaches on either side, but please be careful when adventuring that you don’t get cut off by the tide. It can come in faster than you think.
Great Western is a great beach for lazing in the sun, getting in the sea, it has a lifeguard service so there is safe bathing and lovely cliffs behind. You are close to the town, so get down there and check it out on your Newquay beach adventure.
Great Western is also home to the Electric Beach Festival 2017.
